Tilda With Cross Necklace


Just came back from the doctor for some medical tests this morning :( I wasn't able to wait for the results coz I was so hungry .. lol .. It's not so serious though (I hope), it's just routine needed for my new job..

Last Monday I finally received my Magnolia package, yay :) I am so happy! So many gorgeous stuff to keep me busy for a while. I was able to finish a card last night using a really cute stamp from the Special Moments collection.

Tilda With Cross Necklace
Materials: Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned Papers: Magnolia; Flowers: iamroses; tulle, gesso, sprays, stockinged bird, twine, charm, corrugated board, Distress Ink, Glossy Accent, Liquid Pearl, German Glass Glitter
Stamping: Tilda With Cross Necklace from Special Moments; Xpress It Blending Paper; Copic Markers; Memento Ink
Tools: dooHickey & Spellbinder Dies

The sun was up for a little while, then the storm clouds came.. I'm glad I was able to take a photo just in time. I've colored precious Tilda with Copics.

The new papers from this collection are really beautiful! I die cut the paper with the large Envelope flap and cut another from a white cardstock as a mat. For the Feather die, I covered it with german glass glitter (love this stuff).

The stockinged bird is something I bought from a famous marketplace here in Manila. They use it for bridal souvenirs, etc. It's cute and cheap here :)

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend :)

Tilda With Big Ice Cream

Hi everybody!

I made a very big faux pas today.. I greeted my brother a happy father's day today only to realize it ain't gonna happen til next week.. haha.. My brother tortured me that my age is finally catching up with me.. Well we had a good laugh anyway.. lol..

I cannot wait for my new stamps from the Special Moments collection to arrive this week :) They are just so awesome and I cannot wait to do a lot of coloring. It will keep me busy on my off hours since I am also starting work next week and I'm very excited for that as well (well, not as excited as receiving a package.. lol..).

In the meantime, here's a card I made using stamps from the With Love collection. Now, if I can eat as much sweets as Tilda and not gain a pound, I would :)

Tilda With Big Ice Cream
Materials: Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned Papers: Magnolia; flowers: iamroses; doily, ribbon, pearl string, pistils, corrugated board, tulle, gesso, Distress Ink, Glossy Accents, Liquid Pearl, Stampendous Frantage
Stamping: Tilda With Big Ice Cream & Baked With Love from With Love collection; Xpress It Blending Paper; Copic Markers; Memento Ink
Tools: Magnolia dooHickey & Sizzix

I love coloring masked images :) In this card it seems like Tilda is sneaking in for more sweets... Don't  you just love it when your stamps tell a story like that?

Love, love the Feather dooHickey dies! And it's just so awesome that it comes in 2 sizes :) I layered flowers on the bottom of the die and cut some tulle and placed them underneath just to give it some softness.

I used Frantage on the butterfly dies and layered them up to look like they are flying. My fellow DT member Debbie Dolphin has made absolutely beautiful cards using Frantage. I am in love with the Magnolia Design papers, very romantic, very subtle, incredibly beautiful! To soften it up I applied a little bit of gesso on the papers.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great week ahead :)
